    We are hoping to take some photos and walk around the boardwalk when it first opens. We are annual passholders but staying off property. Will we be able to park at the boardwalk or where is the best place to park? Thank you!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Chalsey! 

    I just returned from a very special vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort and loved seeing the holiday season come alive during my visit. Although not all the decor was up quite yet, it definitely put me in a festive mood! And I'm sure when you arrive in just a few days, you'll see even more magical holiday touches around the theme parks and resorts! 

    Chalsey, Disney's BoardWalk is always one of my favorite places to enjoy when I visit the Walt Disney World Resort. In fact, my daughter had her senior pictures taken there this past July, and they turned out beautifully.  So strolling around and capturing photos sounds like the perfect start to a Disney Day if you ask me. Self-parking is complimentary for day Guests at any of the Resort hotels (Disney's BoardWalk Inn, Disney's Yacht Club Resort, and Disney's Beach Club Resort) along Disney's BoardWalk. I've parked at all three when visiting, but my go-to is usually Disney's BoardWalk Inn. 

    Since I've already mentioned the holiday season at the Walt Disney World Resort, Chalsey, I couldn't forget to suggest you visit all the Resort hotels along Crescent Lake. The festive decor and gingerbread displays are some of my favorites to see and photograph! And a fun fact is that the life-size Holiday Carousel at Disney's Beach Club Resort is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this yEAR!

    Thank you for sending in your question! If we can assist you again in the future, please let us know. 

    Have a MAGICAL vacation!
